Death of Capt. John Dibert.
Captain John Dibert, prominent in lumber, banking and other lines of business, died in his New Orleans home week before last after several months of failing health. He was 68 years of age, a native of Ohio, and had been employed in Louisiana since 1870. He was employed by the Lutcher & Moore Cypress Company and subsequently became a member of the firm, which has extensive holdings in Louisiana and Texas. Capt. Dibert resided some years at Lutcher, in the neighboring parish of St. James, and served as a member of the police jury from the Lutcher ward. Although keen and shrewd in business matters, he was exceptionally warm-hearted and charitable, and his death is deeply regretted by a large circle of devoted friends.
John, Eve Dibert and other family members are interred in one of the most unique and classical mausoleums at Metairie Cemetery that was built by Albert Weiblen. It features a domed roof over a Neo-Classical building, with heavy bronze doors and urns flanking the steps into it.
